Pedro's four-letter assessment of Leicester City loss

Chelsea did a 180-degree turn from the loss against Leicester City, to a win against Sunderland.  While obviously those two teams are nowhere near the same level, the difference in our performances were still quite drastic.  Chelsea attacking midfielder Pedro agrees, mincing no words as he spoke about the team's performance against Leicester, but expecting the Blues to move up the table after the Sunderland win.

"That game was horrible for us. Leicester played well. For us it was a very s*** game. I understand the supporters. It is normal, it is a very difficult situation. This victory is very satisfying."

"It was calming and was important to get the three points. The support is good, they are always with us, together. The situation is not good for us but I think we can start moving up the table."

Despite the win, Chelsea fans weren't entirely happy with the team, placing a large portion of the blame onto the players for all the [ship] that's gone down this season.  Thanks to his terrible performances and often rumored dressing room dissent (which may or may not be true at all), Cesc Fàbregas was one of the main targets of this blame, coming off the pitch under heavy booing from the stands.  Pedro believes his fellow countryman can rise above and prove his worth once again, although he also understands why the supporters were so upset following Mourinho's departure from the club.

"It was difficult for him but he can get through this. He is strong mentally and very competitive. Cesc is a top player, a very good character in the team, he is a winner and it's good he plays for us."

"I understand why the fans are so upset. It's normal when the team and coach are in this position. José Mourinho is a very good coach. It is a difficult situation for everyone. It was certainly difficult for the players, but it was an important win."

Pedro also put in one of his best performance in a Chelsea shirt yet, and hopefully that is a sign of things to come as well.
